3 Epoxy Flooring Installation Details That Are Easy To Miss

Posted by REDRHINO Staff Writer


The minute you go looking for an epoxy flooring installation company, you’ll find that there are literally dozens to choose from. Given that flooring isn’t exactly rocket science, a lot of business owners and building managers will simply go with the vendor that’s closest, or the one that offers the lowest bid.

That can be a big mistake, however – epoxy flooring might not be rocket science, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t a little bit of science and expertise involved in the process. In fact, having your coating installed correctly can go a long way toward making it safer and more durable.

With that in mind, here are three epoxy flooring details that are easy to miss… and that you want your installation team looking out for:

1. Floor preparation. If the surface that you’re applying epoxy flooring to isn’t ready, then it really doesn’t matter what kinds of materials you use. To properly install epoxy coating, you want a clean and dry concrete surface. That’s one of the reasons that we make smoothing and blasting a key part of our service – without this vital prep work, our flooring wouldn’t be nearly as beautiful or durable as it should be. Unfortunately, this is an area where a lot of low-end epoxy flooring companies will rush the job because they know you won’t notice until it’s too late.

2. Installation environment. In this case, the “installation environment” for epoxy flooring refers to the temperature and humidity. Floors need to be completely dry for coatings to set properly. So, in addition to being thoroughly cleaned, they should also be free of drips and undetected moisture. We test surfaces thoroughly to ensure that we are dry before we begin, but that’s not something every company does.

3. The chemical mix. As those who have worked with epoxy flooring in the past will already know, it can be very fickle. That is, even if you’re using the very best chemicals and materials, they need to be properly mixed and prepared in order to give you beautiful flooring. Our team of experts knows how to get the most from the various chemicals we use, so you can always be sure you’re getting the best value when you hire us.

The best way to get the epoxy flooring you need is to work with the right company from the start. RedRhino has the skills, experience, and reputation you can count on, no matter how big your project is or what part of the country you’re in.

Expoxy flooring warranty
The RedRhino Warranty

At RedRhino, we are working hard every day for our reputation as your number one choice for epoxy flooring. As part of that commitment, we think it's important to stand behind our products and our work.

You may notice that some of our competitors claim to give "lifetime" guarantees on flooring. But, once you read the fine print, you find that their promises don't really stand up to their marketing. Look a little further into the reviews, and you'll find that you can't be sure they'll stand behind their flooring for more than a few years… if they are even still in business.

Using warranties from epoxy flooring manufacturers can be difficult, as well. Although most do guarantee their products for a certain amount of time, those guarantees depend on very precise (and occasionally, unrealistic) application settings involving temperature, humidity, concrete surface preparation, etc.

We understand the frustration that customers feel when dealing with these issues, which is why we offer a more straightforward warranty package than anyone in our industry. We can do this because we understand the intricacies of epoxy flooring, and make sure that our teams are trained professionally. They won't apply resin until your floor is ready, and won't rush through the job because they know you need it for years to come.
